The Adams Chronicles

Show Summary

This was an award-winning, thirteen-episode special by PBS that aired in the mid-1970s to commemorate the Bicentennial. It "chronicles" the story of the Adams progeny over a 150-year span, including John (signer of the Declaration, accomplished diplomat, and our 2nd President), his wife Abigail, his son John Quincy (acclaimed Secretary of State, our 6th President, and prominent abolitionist Congressman), grandson Charles Francis, and much-heralded members of the fourth generation.

  • The Adams Chronicles really shows a lot of potential. Unfortunately, the dramatic opening which pulled in until the very end, simply fades out at the end.

    The Adams Chronicles really shows a lot of potential. Unfortunately, the dramatic opening which pulled in until the very end, simply fades out at the end. It's unfortunate but that's a big problem with many shows on tv today. Great start to pull everyone in but botches it up at the end.

    To my knowledge it has been televised one or twice since and I missed a few episodes each time. I really wish PBS would televise it again or at least offer it for sale. This is the best mini series on the beginning of America as an independent nation that has ever been made. It would be a success in any year, 1976 or 2076. I would like to purchase the series on vhs if it were available however, the copyright owner could make a fortune by remastering the sound/video for sale on D V D. way good tv show, nice.moreless
